Prisoners: Movie Man Jackson

“We do not give up on your sister!”  Common sense seems to lend itself to the idea that with every passing day that goes by in a child abduction, the fear of the worst increases exponentially. Every moment matters, and for Keller and Grace Dover (Hugh Jackman, Maria Bello), and friends/neighbors Franklin and Nancy Birch (Terrence Howard, […]

Europa Report: Movie Man Jackson

“Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? And, are we alone?” The question may get old, but it will always be asked (albeit worded differently): Is there life on other planets?

Elysium: Movie Man Jackson

“We’re not gonna f*****g dying here.” Is 2154 so much different than 2015? Los Angeles (and what can be assumed the whole Earth) in the year 2154 is no man’s land.

Afternoon Delight: Movie Man Jackson

“Does that feel better? To be a pariah?” Suburban life may appear to be perfect on the outside, but on the inside, it can be more depressing and disturbing than “normal” people problems.

Her: Movie Man Jackson

“Sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m ever gonna feel.” We’ve seen this central theme before of the relationship of technology to humans, but never quite like this. Spike Jonze’s Her centers around a introverted, soon-to-be divorced man by the name of Theodore Twombly who has become quite lonely and reticent in his separation […]
